    You start a new project and you can pull all the fabric you need from your stash - I never thought that day would come 8)

    If there is such a thing as too much fabric, please don't tell my DH!

    I love being able to shop at home! It is much safer! I can always find some fabric even when I have promised myself that I will not buy any today! :?

    You know you have enough fabric when, you have to start storing it someplace OTHER than the sewing room.

    My DD cannot figure out why I need new fabric for this project and that project. She thinks I have enough. Then she'll ask what do I do with it all? My DS was here this week and I pulled out my finished pieces waiting to be quilted. My DD just beamed as my DS looked over the quilts and oohed and aahed and asking when I have the time to quilt. I told her it was like anything you do - you make the time. Then she went on about how she has no time for this and that and.... geesh. :roll: :roll: :!:

    I love being able to just pull from my stash!!! I could probably make a hundred quilts without buying anything. Of course that's doesn't stop me from adding to it anyway!!! I usually come up with a reason to buy some fabric when I am making a gift, I will buy a couple of the fabs and then pull the majority from my stash.

    LOL. I was talking to a friend today and said I wanted to go fabric shopping, her husband wanted to know if I had a new project. We just laughed. Other people shop for clothes, I shop for fabric just because I want to. It's therapy.

    whoever heard of such a thing!?! Enough? sorry, doesn't register....like with other fabricaholics here I too am in denial. As long as I can keep it on the same floor (it used to be "as long as I can keep it in the sewing room but I'm planning ahead) I still have LOTS of room for more. LOL

    I tell everyone I buy now because when I retire (in 10 years) I may be poor but I'll have a great stash! :lol:
